Google TV!

Google now intends to help people experience the best of TV and the best of the web with and experience where you can turn on the TV while retrieving all the channels and shows that you missed out because of your long day at work. An average American spending up to five hours per day in front a TV and that is something that google would like to take advantage of.
The whole idea behind Google TV, the Times reports, is to create smartphone-like applications that make using the Web on your television as easy as changing the channel. Google hopes to encourage third-party developers to create apps for Google TV with the same enthusiasm they have for creating Android smartphone apps. In the coming months, Google will provide an application development toolkit for Google TV, and the Times says we could see Google TV-related products as early as this summer. It's not clear how these apps will be distributed, but presumably, Google will offer some kind of online marketplace as it does for Android smartphones.
